Only things is to have the proper tv kickdown cable, lokar makes one for good price and if you don't have proper shift linkage, lokar also makes what you need for that, just be sure the kick down cable is adjusted properly or you'll burn it up.

Put truck in park and go back and it will not start

Sounds like a neutral safety switch is bad or needs adjusted. The switch prevents the truck from being started in gear....maybe try adjusting the shifter linkage at the transmission and see it that helps first.

Need instructions on how to connect the gear shifting cable back onto the transmission.

simple, you take the round end of the shifter cable and place it over the linkage bar on the transmition, apply presure and it should pop right on.

Trouble starting


It sounds as though you have a problem with the starter inhibitor switch on the transmssion.

Bridge the terminals on the inhibitor and then see if that solves the problem to start with, then if so, you need to either adjust the inhibitor or the gear shifter.

From the sounds of it though, there may be a cable adjustment possible on the gear shifter.
